Delicious fried artichokes!

Our experience was definitely memorable. We sat amongst locals and basically had our food ordered for us, which was fine because it was all delicious! The fried artichokes were particularly good (you eat the whole thing, which we didn't know at first!). The staff are a bit brisk but all in all we... read more

Cheap and only OK. To get to it you have to run through the maitre d' of all the surrounding restaurants waving menus in your face.... It might as well be on Piazza Navona.

This restaurant had been recommended to me by a local and so I was very upset to have the rudest staff I have ever experienced. While the food was okay (I think there is a difference in what you receive depending on what the staff think of you though!) it was not pleasant to have your attempts at speaking Italian... More

If you want a quiet, peaceful and authentic Rome meal DO NOT GO HERE! It was much like a cafeteria where tables are shared. Food mediocore, much better available elsewhere for the price. There is a get-in-n-out rush of the service. Really below our expectations based on previous reviews. For a nice meal at an reasonable price go to Trattoria... More

I agree with Alvaro P in every respect. The food is OK but frankly this restaurant survives on folklore and nostalgia. It's not inexpensive yet the restaurant ( more like a 1930's throwback - which is exactly what's on offer ) caters for tourists like me. It is by no means a typical restaurant. It was OK and I did...

Very rustic, small place, great food, reservation is a must! I'd suggest: pasta cacio e pepe, abbacchio and carciofi alla giudia.

I read in a lot of guides that this place it's amazing and you can not miss it. We arrive for the lunch and wait like 30 minutes until the staff was prepared, like other 15 tourists like us waiting on the street. is a really small place but when you are there you expect will be the experience you...

The menu is handwritten and the place is small and cramped. But this is one of my favorite spots in Rome. The food is simply fantastic!! Fresh pasta with a variety of different sauces to select from. We almost missed it after searching for it for about 10 minutes, but don't give up...it's worth the quest.

Sora Margherita is a no frills trattoria serving the best food I've had in The Ghetto. Before our arrival, I asked a relative (who lives in Rome) to recommend a place where I could eat the best pagliata. He took us to Sora and it didn't disappoint. Once you try their food, you will not mind being under fluorencent lights.... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
